The latest Waterway Health Assessment Training (WHAT) workshop, run by Brisbane City Council, is free for catchment group members. It will teach you techniques that can be used to assess the abundance and diversity of stream fish species.
This information has direct conservation value to will help answer questions such as:
1. What is the distribution and abundance of native and introduced (exotic) fish species?
2. How is the distribution and abundance of native and exotic fish species changing with time?
3. What are the key types of threat (e.g. habitat degradation, invasions by exotic species) that
affect native Australian fish species?
4. Can particular habitat elements or the composition of fish communities be used as indicators of
overall stream quality?
